Beatrice Wood In religion, India is the only millionaire......the One land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined. ~~~ Mark Twain We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made. ~~~ Albert Einstein When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous. ~~~ Albert Einstein If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India. ~~~ Max Mueller (German scholar) The Indian way of life provides the vision of the natural, real way of life. We veil ourselves with unnatural masks. On the face of India are the tender expressions which carry the mark of the Creator's hand. ~~~ George Bernard Shaw (Irish playwrite) The Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity is of wonderful structure, more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin and more exquisitely refined than either. ~~~Sir William Jones (English scholar) After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect ,none so scientific, none so philosophical and no so spiritual that the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil in to which India's roots are stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out from its place. And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism who shall save it? If India's own children do not cling to her faith who shall guard it? India alone can save India and India and Hinduism are one. ~~~Annie Besant (English theosophist) Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoliation, India will teach us the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind, the quiet content of the unacquisitive soul, the calm of the understanding spirit, and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things. ~~~ Will Durant (American philosopher) Civilizations have arisen in other parts of the world. In ancient and modern times, wonderful ideas have been carried forward from one race to another...But mark you, my friends, it has been always with the blast of war trumpets and the march of embattled cohorts. Each idea had to be

soaked in a deluge of blood..... Each word of power had to be followed by the groans of millions, by the wails of orphans, by the tears of widows. This, many other nations have taught; but India for thousands of years peacefully existed. Here activity prevailed when even Greece did not exist... Even earlier, when history has no record, and tradition dares not peer into the gloom of that intense past, even from until now, ideas after ideas have marched out from her, but every word has been spoken with a blessing behind it and peace before it. We, of all nations of the world, have never been a conquering race, and that blessing is on our head, and therefore we live....! ~~~Swami Vivekananda (Indian philosopher) In India I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth. but not adhering to it. Inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them, possessing everything but possessed by nothing. ~~~ Apollonius Tyanaeus ( Greek Thinker and Traveler)

Even village priest will frequently open their temple ceremonies with the following beloved invocation: O Lord, forgive three sins that are due to my human limitations: Thou art everywhere, but I worship you here; Thou art without form, but I worship you in these forms; Thou needest no praise, yet I offer you these prayers and salutations, Lord, forgive three sins that are due to my human limitations. With one foot grounded in time-honored traditions and the other fervently striding into the entrepreneurial e-age, India embraces diversity passionately as few other countries on earth could. ~~~ Lonely Planet (Travel guide book) [at Gandhi's funeral] in gandhi movie... The object of this massive tribute died as he had always lived - a private man without wealth, without property, without official title or office. Mahatma Gandhi was not the commander of armies nor a ruler of vast lands. He could not boast any scientific achievement or artistic gift. Yet men, governments and dignitaries from all over the world have joined hands today to pay homage to this little brown man in the loin cloth who led his country to freedom.( Pope Pius, the Archbishop of Canterbury, President Truman, Chiang Kai-shek, The Foreign Minister of Russia, the President of France... are among the millions here and abroad who have lamented his passing.) In the words of General George C. Marshall, the American Secretary of State, "Mahatma Gandhi has become the spokesman for the conscience of all mankind, he was a man who made humility and simple truth more powerful than empires." And Albert Einstein added, "Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth."

Optimist: Day-dreamer more elegantly spelled The secret source of humour itself is not joy, but sorrow Humor is mankind's greatest blessing.

A classic is a book which people praise and don't read. It is curious - curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

Human pride is not worthwhile; there is always something lying in wait to take the wind out of it Nature knows no indecencies; man invents them. Everything is changing.

An inventor is simply a fellow who doesnt take his education too seriously. Charles F. Kettering One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life; That word is love. Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence. Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished. Wicked men obey out of fear; good men, out of love. Love begins by taking care of the closest ones-the ones at home. A man is not where he lives, but where he loves. Life is the flower for which love is the honey. Love is not a thing you can do,when you do other things love will happen. People who are sensible about love are incapable of it. There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved. Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Warning: Humor may be hazardous to your illness. Humor is merely tragedy standing on its head with its pants torn.
